Positive Reviews


City-Centre Location.

When staying at Smart City Hostels, the various bustling attractions of Edinburgh are only a brief walk from the site. Delight in various styles of cuisine, a diverse range of entertainment venues, and multiple historic sites, such as Edinburgh Castle and Edinburgh Dungeons. Bus stops and train depots are also only a short distance away.


Almost Overbearing in Hospitality.

Immediately upon arrival, visitors are greeted by courteous personnel. The staff at Smart City Hostels place hospitality above all else when tending to the requests and concerns of their guests. Whether you're in need of directions to the hostel or any of the surrounding attractions, conversing with reception on arrival, or enjoying a drink from the bar, impeccable service is ensured.


Homely Amenities.

Previous visitors are often inclined to regard Smart City Hostels as their home-away-from-home. With convenient amenities--such as complimentary Wi-Fi, bar service, and 24-hour reception--one's stay is anything but ill-accommodated. Private dorms are available, consisting of twins, triples, quads, and six-person rooms.

Negative Reviews


A Tad Noisy.

However spacious and comfortable, the sleeping arrangements at Smart City Hostels are often subject to noise from the ground floor bar, as well as rowdy passersby. Previous visitors have expressed their frustration with enduring little sleep, as commotion emitting from the bar can be heard well into the evening.


Poor Wi-Fi Connection.

While Smart City Hostels provides guests with complimentary Wi-Fi, some have found difficulty when attempting to connect from the dorms. Although Wi-Fi accessibility tends to be a bit sounder in other residents' facilities, the connection speed may be slower than what most are familiar with.


Some Dated and Unclean Facilities.

Previous residents of this city-centre hostel have borne complaints over the condition of some facilities. In addition to creaking floor boards, leaking faucets, scuffed counter tops, and frayed drapes have incurred the negative attention of guests.
